Foreign Private Trust

A 'foreign trust' is a trust governed by the laws of a foreign jurisdiction. It is not only for the rich, but is especially popular among families who apply for residency abroad, as well as complicated families with heirship issues. Foreign trust is most commonly used for asset protection (for example, from third party creditors, exchange control or other government interference), while its other functions include investment, estate planning and succession planning purpose. Depending on the country of trust formation, income generated outside the country is not subjected to any taxation. Some of the advantages of setting up a private foreign trust include the followings:

  • - Confidentiality of the personal details of the settlor
  • - Tax Mitigation
  • - Planning for future generations
  • - To circumvent forced heirship provisions
